Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: After a public humiliation, Selah sets sail across the Atlantic in order to find a life partner among the European royal houses who can help secure the future of her Potomac people, a journey that sees her interacting with figures from legend and mythology.
As the only daughter of the leader of Potomac, Selah knows her duty is to find a partner who will help secure the future of her people. After an excruciatingly public rejection, Selah's stepmother suggests Selah must set sail across the Atlantic, where a series of potential suitors awaits... and if she doesn't come home engaged, she shouldn't come home at all. From English castle gardens to the fjords of Norge, Selah's quest will be the journey of a lifetime. But her stepmother's schemes aren't the only secrets hiding below deck... and the stakes of her voyage may be higher than any happy ending. -- adapted from jacket

    Selah, the Seneschal-Elect of Potomac, believes her best quality is her faith that a larger story is being told all around us, even when it's beyond our view. It's a quality she'll need. When her proposal is publicly rejected, Selah's stepmother has a solution ready: Selah will set sail across the Atlantic to court the sons of strong royal families. For shy Selah, devoted to her father and her gentle, down-to-earth colony, the prospect is beyond intimidating. More frightening still, the journey will bring her to the Imperiya, the domain of the infamous witch-queen tsarytsya whose reputation alone fills Selah with fear. Selah's journey, which follows classic fairy-tale conventions and features high adventure, political intrigue, and swoon-worthy romance, takes her to alternate historical versions of England and Scandinavia, where she meets legendary storytellers and mythical heroes as she comes into her own. Bright's debut, the first half of a duology, is enhanced by a large cast of well-developed secondary characters and gracefully handled interwoven plotlines. A glittering paean to storytelling with wide appeal. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
